Budapest Danube River Dinner Cruise

Budapest Szechenyi Chain Bridge

Your evening will begin at Danube Palace in the center of Budapest. From there, a guide will show you the way to the river where your dinner cruise will be waiting for you. You can toast your fellow shipmates with a glass of wine or Sparkling wine as you gaze out the windows to view Budapest’s panorama, given recognition by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
Many of Budapest’s notable sights are showcased along the river, and you’ll have a front-row seat to admire the glowing Buda Castle and the Freedom Monument. You’ll also pass the Gellért Baths, where Hungarians and visitors alike come to swim and relax, as well as the Chain Bridge, a suspension bridge that spans the river and connects Buda and Pest.
If you’d like to dine aboard your Danube River cruise, select the option at checkout to include a traditional Hungarian meal with your ticket, which will be served buffet-style. (Please check the Itinerary section for a sample of the menu.) Live music from the Hungaria Folk Orchestra will also be provided as you take in all the sights, history and culture that this sparkling city has to offer.

We absolutely loved this dinner cruise. It was a beautiful night. The lights of the city were amazing. The boat was not too crowded. The music was soothing and not overpowering. We also had a chance to taste some of the common dishes of the area. I would recommend this activity for sure.

Beautiful city to see during the day and just beautiful the night lights along the Danube River. This should be one of your top things to do in Budapest is to a dinner night cruise. Plenty of good food and wine to drink. Music was great. Tables of eight was great so we got to visit other people. Some how you can through the language of different nations and still can communicate with each other. Spend threes day in Budapest and loved each minute there. You will never forget the scenery at night.

Fantastic experience! Very organised tour with clear instructions on the pickup location. After gathering at the pickup point, the guide led us to walk to the cruise location, which was a nice 5-7 min walk. Very organised and easy. Getting onto the cruise was also pretty well-organised and we were able to get clear instructions to get to our room. The view from the cruise was superb and we really enjoyed ourselves. Definitely worth it!

We took this tour for my birthday meal. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Food was excellent, service was excellent and the entertainment was excellent. Well worth the money.

This was the highlight of our trip! We are glad we didn't pick the dinner option drinks only, because if we spent time eating we would have missed being able to enjoy the views from the rooftop. All the landmarks are well lit and beautiful from the river and the two drinks definitely added to the ambiance.
